Cornwall has been caught on camera like never before in a series of live videos on Facebook.

The Aerostream live drone stream took place arcoss three days over Falmouth, Newquay and St Ives, showcasing the beautiful towns from the sky.

Using a DJI Inspire 2, DJI's flagship drone, Aerostream flew up to 400 feet above ground level.

More than 60,000 people tuned in to watch from Greece to Germany to the USA.

Lloyd from Cheshire said after the first live streaming of Newquay: "Looking forward to the next one!

"It was great to see people watching from all over - well done to all involved in this groundbreaking event!"

Alison Fareham from Australia said: "In Australia, but I wish I was in Cornwall!"

Louise Ibbotson said: "Thank you so much Aerostream - beautiful, pure escapism"

Patricia Willey-Chang: "Watched from Las Vegas, Nevada in U.S.A!!!!!!"

John Goodman mentioned how it's "Really weird watching the drone from my lounge window and seeing it on the screen."

During the Newquay live stream the drone flew from Newquay harbor, around to the headland and then onto Towan beach.

The drone flew over Falmouth for the second streaming on the 14th. Starting from Swanpool beach, the Aerostream then flew around to Gyllynvase.

And on Friday, at St Ives, Aerostream organised a gig rowing race.
